Czech goaltender Hasek retires days after Red Wings Stanley Cup victory

Czech goaltender Hasek retires days after Red Wings Stanley Cup victory

Dominik Hasek announced his retirement from ice hockey during a news conference in Detroit on Monday, only days after the Red Wings won the Stanley Cup in six games over Pittsburgh.
The six-time Vezina Trophy winner as the National Hockey League's top goaltender and two-time Hart Trophy winner as the league's player of the year leaves on a mixed note.
Hasek, the only goalie ever to win the NHL's player of the year award twice, lost his job during Detroit's run to the Cup. The 43-year-old from the Czech Republic was benched during the opening-round series in favor of Chris Osgood and never regained the starting job.
